A few weeks back when we were in San Diego Hazel caught a cold, she had a fever and was lethargic. And unfortunately, I forgot our medicine bag at home -oops! So at six o’clock in the morning Brand ran to the nearest Kroger and grabbed Hazel some medicine to kick her fever and get her feeling well again. It would have been so much easier if I hadn’t forgotten our medicine bag because we would have had everything we needed to take care of her right then and there. So, if you’re looking to learn from someone’s mistakes, learn from mine. Don’t forget your medicine bag at home.
I thought I would quickly share with you what was in my beloved medicine bag so you can get a good idea about what to put in yours.
Breathe-eez Portable Nasal Aspirator: Perfect if your baby or toddler has a runny or stuffy nose. It is designed to gently provide immediate relief from your baby’s nasal congestion. Hazel doesn’t have a problem using this at all, she actually thinks it’s kind of funny -which I was totally shocked by. And it works well to get out the boogers that are causing her such a hard time. It’s safe to use and hygienic, you don’t suck any of it into your mouth. I also really like it because it comes in this perfect travel size kit. It’s easy to clean with hot, soapy water and is BPA free.
Band-Aids: You never know when your toddler is going to fall down or get a cut, always having band-aids available is a must.
Your Child’s Preferred Flavor of Medicine: So this is what happened to us, we weren’t able to find the correct flavor medicine at the San Diego Kroger and it was kind of a big ordeal. Hazel wouldn’t take her medicine and we had to tell her that we had to go home if she didn’t take the medicine. Thankfully she ended up taking the medicine.
Carmex and Desitin: Chapped lips and rashes hurt, they tend to happen more when you are on vacation because you are walking around a lot and not drinking as much water as you normally would. Also, long road trips can really be a pain in your toddler’s bum -for real- so if you put a little Desitin on your toddler before your long road trip you might save them some pain.
Eczema Lotion: Hazel gets random breakouts of eczema, it’s sad because you know it hurts her -especially when she is sitting there scratching it telling you how much it hurts. We always have a trial size bit of this lotion in our bag for the just in case moments.
Thermometer: We invested in a digital thermometer, and I’m glad we did because it’s so much easier to use. You don’t want to be guessing if your child had a fever, and you especially don’t want to under think a fever because those can turn into really bad situations.
I received this product for review, but all opinions and words are my own.
